'Sword of the Necromancer' (ALL) Launches Kickstarter Campaign - Trailer

by Rainier on April 8, 2020 @ 8:29 a.m. PDT

Sword of the Necromancer is a dungeon-crawler action RPG with Rogue-like elements where you can revive your defeated enemies to make them fight alongside you.

What would you do to bring back someone you love?

Turn your foes into allies using the forbidden powers of the Sword of the Necromancer and help Tama reach the dungeon's depths in order to gain enough power to bring Koko back from the dead.

Gather a little army of monsters, equip yourself with weapons and relics and level up to take on the guardians that stand between you and your objective.

Sword of the Necromancer is inspired by Rogue-like games like Enter the Gungeon, 2D Zelda games like A Link to the Past and monster-catching mechanics like those from Azure Dreams. The aim is to create a fluid battle system, with head-to-head combat as its main focus while leaning on monster summons for special actions and attacks.

JanduSoft and Grimorio of Games have launched a Kickstarter campaign for Sword of the Necromancer, looking to raise $16,289.

You will be able to obtain items, weapons and monsters by entering codes in the Inventory screen. Use of these codes is limited to a few per day, so don't abuse them! You can use the IR Codes as a help if you are stuck in the game or as a way to play with a certain starting set so you can challenge your friends.

To enter the codes you can use the IR Scanner feature for the Nintendo Switch. Using the IR camera available in the Nintendo Switch Right Joycon you can scan the codes easily, or...

... you can enter them manually! For non-Switch platforms we are working on a companion app for Smartphone that will let you scan the code using your phone camera, but even if you don't want to use a Smartphone (or don't have one) or have a Nintendo Switch Lite, you will always be able to use the IR Codes regardless of where you play the game!

You can obtain IR Codes by purchasing the physical collectable IR Cards (see the Rewards section below) or by digital distribution via our Social Media Sites and Discord for some special events.

The digital distribution event codes will be absolutely free. Just download the code, print it or enter it manually and get your item!
